Alooba Talent Pool Matching

In the world of talent acquisition, the ability to effectively match candidates to job roles is crucial. But what if the perfect candidate for your new job opening has already applied for a different role within your organization? With Alooba's Talent Pool Matching feature, you can easily search for such candidates based on their skills and the date range of their application. This feature allows you to maximize the potential of your existing talent pool, saving time and resources in the recruitment process.

Why Use Talent Pool Matching?

Talent Pool Matching is a powerful tool that offers several key benefits:

  1. Efficiency: Instead of starting the recruitment process from scratch, you can leverage your existing talent pool to find suitable candidates for new roles.
  2. Faster Role Filling: By identifying high-scoring candidates from your talent pool, you can expedite the process of filling roles, reducing time-to-hire and ensuring your organization secures top talent.
  3. Cost Savings: By utilizing your existing candidate database, you can significantly reduce the costs associated with sourcing new candidates.
  4. Improved Candidate Experience: Candidates who have previously applied to your organization will appreciate being considered for other relevant roles, enhancing their overall experience with your brand.

How to Use Talent Pool Matching In Alooba

Using Talent Pool Matching in Alooba is a straightforward process. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Navigate to the Candidate Search Page: This is where you can access the Talent Pool Matching feature. Click on the search icon located in the top right corner of the page or the 'Candidates' menu item on the left under either Alooba Assess or Alooba Junior.

  2. Search by Skill: Enter the skills that are relevant to the new role you're trying to fill. Alooba will return a list of candidates who have demonstrated these skills in their previous applications.

    • The system will consider candidates who have taken assessments that include the selected skills. For candidates who have taken a skill in multiple assessments, the average score will be considered.
    • The results will be sorted based on each candidate's overall score, which represents the average of all their skills.
  3. Search by Date Range: Specify the date range within which the candidates applied. This allows you to focus on recent applicants or widen your search to include older applications.

By combining skill and date range searches, you can effectively find candidates who not only possess the necessary skills but also have a recent interest in your organization. You may want to also further refine your search by selecting one or multiple Alooba products (Alooba Assess, Alooba Junior, and/or Alooba Growth) in the Product Filter.

In the search candidates page, when the skills filter is not empty, then the results will not be clickable since they are aggregated from all the assessments the candidates have participated in.


Let's consider a real-world example. Suppose your organization is looking to fill a new role for a Data Analyst. Your organization have been using Alooba to fill several similar roles recently, such as Product Analyst, and Business Analyst. Instead of starting the recruitment process from scratch, you decide to use the Talent Pool Matching feature. You have identified that the important skills you will be looking for in your new Data Analyst are Python, SQL, and Statistics.

You navigate to the Candidate Search Page and select Python, SQL, and Statistics in the skills filter. You then specify the date range to cover the past six months. Alooba returns a list of candidates who rated highly across those skills during that period. You can now review these candidates and consider reaching out to them for the Data Analyst role, saving significant time and resources.

Searching for a candidate with specific skill set (Python, SQL, and Statistics)

The result will include the candidate names, their emails, the average score on each of the skills selected in the Skills Filter, and the average total score. The result is sorted by the average total score by default, but you can sort by Name or Email columns.

Maximize Your Talent Pool

In conclusion, the Candidates page is a powerful tool that empowers you to efficiently identify candidates with the right skill set for specific roles from your existing talent pool. By utilizing the skill, product, and date filters, you can quickly locate top candidates. By effectively matching candidates from your talent pool to new roles, you can save time, reduce costs, and improve the candidate experience. So, the next time you have a new role to fill, remember to leverage the power of Talent Pool Matching in Alooba.
